in sandy hook, my oldest daughter told me we will see more of these things unless kids are given a better future to vote for rather than being some rich person slate. host: thanks for the call. guest: you are right, the rich, no matter what the tax level will be, have a way of getting around taxes. working people have a harder time doing that. it is not about what level of rate we put taxes on individuals. it is about spending. we've got to reduce spending. she said obama has given to republicans but i'm not sure what he has given in on. in this negotiation on the fiscal cliff, he has not been at the table. he has been traveling all or the country to propose raising taxes on millionaires and billionaires and then doing their fair share. the reality is, is spending that is causing this problem. spending levels of the government and of this debt has created the poor economy. the poor recovery we have seen is the failed obama policies that has created a false economy and we have to start dealing with the spending, not taxes, but spending is the problem. we've got to treat the problem and tha

of things -- what happened to those children was awful. what happened to those people from superstorm sandy was awful. when we bomb and destroy andple's homes and children', it is not a declared war. those people suffered just as much as these people do. the other thing -- we have senators, like mitch mcconnell, and he, his wife, and his in- laws benefit from his position because they are part of a chinese shipping magnate. his wife was secretary of trade under the bush administration. they are using their position to help china, and china is the biggest abortion country in the world. when you throw all this into a big mixture, you cannot blame the gun. host: thank you for the call and comment. a bitter fight had on gun control, according to the washington post. we are following some of the options on what is next. speaker boehner is confronting a political cliff over the budget track is, putting out that the speaker's leadership and legacy remained at stake. they point out that in a show of support, house leader eric cantor. at a news conference with the speaker in a call to extend the tax

in sandy funds would be spent. don't you think you could put together a list of spending cuts that at least, at least includes robosquirrel? we're still waiting. why? because for democrats, apparently, every dollar in federal spending is sacred. once secured, it can't be cut. that's why we have got trillion-dollar deficits. the truth is until the president gets specific about cuts, nobody should trust democrats to put a dime in new revenue toward real deficit reduction or to stop their shakedown of the taxpayers at the top 2%. as one liberal lawmaker put it last week, that's just the beginning. when it comes to deficit deals, the taxpayers need to trust but verify. on cuts, that means specifics. and, mr. president, on an entirely different subject, as we enter the final weeks of the 112th congress, one of the toughest tasks for me is saying goodbye to colleagues who won't be with us at the start of the next congress. so i'd like to kick it off this morning by spending just a few minutes bragging on my long-time friend and neighbor to the north, senator dick lugar. let me just start by sayin

in the house, sandy levin, that called for this legislation. the speaker was going to bring it up to kill it but he couldn't kill it. and then we moved to albany b, b, -- plan b, the debacle of all debacles. it's the mother of all debacles. that was brought up in an effort to send us something. he couldn't even pass it among republicans, it was so absurd, he meaning the speaker. so it's very clear now, mr. president, that the speaker's number-one goal is to get elected speaker on january 3. the house is not even here. he's told me he will give them two days to get back here, 48 hours. not two days. 48 hours. they don't even have enough of the leadership here to meet to talk about it. they have done it with conference calls. people are spread all over this country because the speaker basically is waiting for january 3. now, the president campaigned on raising taxes on people making more than $250,000 a year. the bush-era tax cuts will expire at the end of this year. obama was elected with a surplus of about three million votes. he won the election. he campaigned on this issue. again, the s
